Tiny Innovations and Rejuvenations
Grand, sometimes heroic, responses to two years of COVID-driven disruptions made it possible to serve CU Denver’s students and communities in extraordinary ways. For a much-needed change of scale, on April 15, ThinqStudio’s annual Unconference focused on “Tiny Innovations and Rejuvenations.” After these challenging years, CU Denver’s dedicated educators, staff, and administrators relished the opportunity to explore and share ways to persevere, innovate, and learn. On this different, not-grand scale, ThinqStudio asked about the tiny ways CU Denver faculty members have learned to cope and grow during the pandemic. Yes, faculty members have participated in the University’s large responses, building strategies for the future. Yet, great strategies can sometimes leave people feeling burdened rather than inspired, overwhelmed rather than rejuvenated.
